A Danger Game



Recommended Posts

Adelaide will be a difficult beast to tame. Home ground, a new-found modus operandi. They went West last week and didn't lose by much. The lads need to be on top of their game for this.

It feels like the stakes are higher and higher each week too, seeing as we're yet to drop one!

Are used to absolutely dreading it when we were playing a low team and I would read on the MFC website: “we won’t take them lightly says Jones”. We were guaranteed to lose.

I think they are different now. Goodwin says: we expect every team to bring their best. There seems to be no assumption that low teams are easybeats. So I am very hopeful.

It’s easy to find at least a couple of reasons we might loose with any game, so unless every game is a danger game then I couldn’t disagree more strongly. The reasons we should win this far outweigh the reasons we loose, crows are in the bottom 4 and we are undefeated for a reason.

I thought Carlton would be because they score well but Adelaide is a terrible defensive team and also doesn't score all that heavily. I'm trusting our team more and more, we're going to have to have breakdowns in all areas of the game to drop a game like this.

Every week someone posts that this week is a real danger game since round 1

No....im not going to get stressed at all about this game. When we drop a game i will worry then. Until then...this is absolutely brilliant.

Smash them like guitars !

The crows have been impressive considering.

They have Talia, Lynch, Crouch, Murphy, Milera all out

But, they have lost the last 5 and are gonna have a tough few months.  We should win by 5 goals if we play well/ok

we could win by 12 goals if we click

Danger left Adelaide a few years back....

Along the same lines dee-tox, I was secretly hoping to open this thread and find some footage of Bernie Vince performing submissive tactics on Danger at the Adelaide oval circa. 2014??

We have been a bit off since the Richmond game. I’m not sure whether this is on purpose but it may explain the slow starts. Our game appears to respond to the oppositions intensity and we eventually break them down. 
 

 I think we will look similar against the Crows (slow start then overcome them by 5-6 goals) but hope that we are switched on from the first bounce against the Dogs and Lions.

Spot on. Take on every team expecting them to play their best. This is our first proper away game with hostile fans at the teams actual home ground, Tex has been in good form (though faded recently), and they have the youthful enthusiasm that if they get going can get the fans up and about.

They score through Tex.  May will thrash him.  They have few other avenues to score.  Teams with struggling defences might be pushed by them.  When they score under 40 points for the whole game due to the dee squeeze, it will be how far.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t

    LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY by Whispering Jack

    When the combatants that are due to face off on Monday night at Optus Stadium last met, it was 11 days after the World Health Organization had declared the Covid19 outbreak a global pandemic. In Australia, the first cases had just come to light, including visiting US actors Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, the toilet paper panic was in full flight and the world was starting to reel in anticipation of impending disaster. Half an hour before this last game of the opening round was due to comme
